Last Excerpt of “One Boy’s Struggle: A Memoir”

Always Deep in Thought Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the final excerpt of “One Boy’s Struggle: A Memoir” I will be posting. I have returned the Proofs to the publisher and my Memoir about Surviving Life with Undiagnosed ADD will be published in just a couple short weeks! This is a very exciting time for me and I believe it is fortuitous that it comes at the grandest time of the year! …I was even cynical when I first started seeking professional help. I met with two therapists with whom I did not feel comfortable before I met Dr. Gary, the type of therapist I was looking for. He was easy to talk to on a personal level, non-judgmental, and believed in positive reinforcement. Still, I had no idea what therapy would do for me or how important it really was. I would soon find out though, and for the […]

This is the fourth excerpt of “One Boy’s Struggle: A Memoir: Surviving life with undiagnosed ADD”

This excerpt is a paragraph from my forthcoming book © “One Boy’s Struggle…” The excerpts I am posting are short paragraphs which I think will give you a good idea of what you will read and discover in my Memoir. This particular paragraph mentions the Law of Attraction, which I consider very important for any Adder. Although I explain in detail within the book itself, it is important to note that the majority of people with ADD ADHD have difficulty forecasting the future or planning or ‘seeing’ what the results of their work will bring and is a major reason Adders have difficulty accomplishing most everything that does not have immediate results. The Law of Attraction has helped me significantly in this area and has become a very important tool I use daily and I believe, from my experiences, this can help anyone with or without ADD ADHD, but most […]

This is the third excerpt of “One Boy’s Struggle: A Memoir: Surviving life with undiagnosed ADD”

  As ADDers, especially those of us who are undiagnosed, it seems that there are so many things against us. We often have to deal with and conform to the structure of the educational system, social structures, and expectations from others and ourselves. There is so much negativity attached to having Attention Deficit Disorder that often we are compelled to keep it a secret once we are diagnosed with it. If so much is against us, why in the world do we add ourselves to the list? Thinking negatively or being ashamed of having ADD is counterproductive to living successfully with it. As ADDers, we already face the challenges of making our way in a world which is not set up for our unique way of processing it. If we want to become successful and happy, we should encourage ourselves to think more positively about ADD and ourselves. Positive thinking […]

Commander Mart

  As a young boy I would frequently get lost. It was odd, because I would go far, far away and then in an instant I would be right back at home. I didn’t know how I did it, but I did and it was fascinating, it was wonderful and it was intoxicating to my little mind. Even at a very young age I had a mind for dreaming, my dreams weren’t about simple things or even things which were directly around me. I dreamed of flying. I could jump in the air and start flying—just like that, or I could jump onto my silver Pegasus and have him fly me wherever I wanted to go. And the places I would go were far, far away—to distant planets and words in other dimensions! I was Commander Mart—the savoir of worlds and hero to millions. I would fly places and help others […]

Those that are left behind ‘because’ of the nature of ADD: Attention Deficit Disorder

Those that are left behind ‘because’ of the nature of ADD: Attention Deficit Disorder

When I was growing up I was a quiet, well behaved kid. I stayed out of trouble and I stayed out of the way. If you visited one of my classes in grade school you might not have even noticed I was there. I sat in the back of the class, quiet, unassuming and out of trouble. In school, aside from actual academic performance, the most trouble I got into was when my name was called and I wasn’t paying attention to hear it. That was about it—I wasn’t a ball of fire and energy who needed constant supervision. I didn’t break things and I didn’t talk back. Aside from bad grades and not doing my chores, I was the perfect child, the preferred child—a child who was complemented by other parents for being so quiet and well behaved. At some point in my youth, maybe I was ten or […]
